“As the market matures, it needs more than just a tactical solution to the problem, it needs a strategic solution to the problem. And that’s where we said, we want to personalize every touch point on the customer journey.” (8:08)
“People used to think that video had to be produced and polished and perfect, and what we found this year is that people actually don’t want that most of the time. They want it to be personal, and they want it to be engaging, because it’s real and authentic, not because it’s produced and perfect.” (17:18)
“When you put a video bubble on your website, or you send out a video email to your customers, and you say, ‘hey we’d love to hear from you’ because it gives an opportunity to share their problem with you. And then, if you take the time to answer those questions, it shows that you care and that you have something to offer back.” (20:13)
